"A superb audio translation....Extraordinary work." (Library Journal)
"Ben Kingsley's smooth, articulate performance makes the formal writing style accessible to the listener." (AudioFile)
loved the book! the narrator did a nice job. however, he should have learnt the correct pronunciations of the Indian names, cities, and words. being from India, I struggled with that.
I bought this audio book on a whim, Ben Kingsley as narrator was the selling point. What an incredible journey! Paramahansa Yogananda was a brilliant storyteller. I feel so blessed to have had the mystical experience of listening to this book.
He covered so many metaphysical subjects that I couldn't always keep up. So this is an audio book that I regularly listen to. Each time I pick up more knowledge. I find some merit in almost every story.
Of course the book centers around the author's life. He is the protagonist, so to speak.
Well, just about everything Ben does is 100 percent professional. This is no exception.
This book is so good that it approaches the wisdom conveyed in the Bible. Books like this help me to understand the Bible better.
Thank you Paramahansa Yogananda.
Few books have the power to change lives! This is one of them... I stand here in awe as this book has concluded but my journey of self realization has just begun.
Ben Kingsley does a beautiful job narrating this book. His voice adds life to what is already a vibrant text. This book will continue to play a role in my life and the lives of millions around the world.
It is, in a word, Magic.
Awesome autobiography, filled with deep insights. This work held my attention and is worthy of a second listen with pen and paper in hand. wonderfully and soulfully narrated.
I highly recommend this audiobook.
